ORPHANAGE CHRISTMAS GIFT APPEALChristmas Gift appeal for L.I.V.E. charity in support of the local Malaga Orphanage "Cuidad de los Ninos".
The Christmas party was held on 8th December and this year more than ever, they really do need as much public awareness of the appeal as possible. Further information about other fundraising activities going on in December can be found at http://www.squidoo.com/L-I-V-E and
L.I.V.E is the local ex-pat charity supporting the Malaga Children’s Home “La Cuidad de los Ninos”.
Every year, the charity holds a Christmas party for nearly 200 children that the Children’s Home cares for.
This year's party was held in Nerja on Tuesday 8th December.
The children of “La Cuidad de los Ninos” have been rescued by the local authority from terrible, inhumane depravation. There are more than 50 residents living in the Home run by Brother Juan. In addition, the Home provides a safe haven for food, clothing, warmth and schooling for a further 100+ children brought into the Home on a daily basis from the nearby poverty-stricken shanty town.
The children in the home range from aged 2 – 18.
WE NEED YOUR HELP…
We are asking for donations of gifts and presents for their Annual Christmas Party.
Please wrap each gift and clearly mark whether it is for a boy or a girl.
“These children have so very little of their own” says Brian Marsh, Chairman of L.I.V.E. “if the ex pat community can contribute something, anything, we can send a strong signal to these young boys and girls that despite the difficult financial times we find ourselves in someone still cares about them”.
As always throughout the year, we are also keen for donations of clothing, toiletries, food or money. The Home and the resident children are very much dependent on your donations.
